Marty Pattin was born on this day in 1943. He broke with the Angels in 1968 and ended up with the Seattle Pilots that became the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970.
Pattin was a tough pitcher as we can see by his 35-38 record over 3 seasons as a starter with the expansion Brewers. He started 92 and completed 22 during that time. I recall that he always kept Milwaukee in the game. He was an innings eater and had that "bulldog" personality that you value in a starter.
In 1972, he was traded to the Red Sox and eventually the Royals. He was an important part of KC' s post season run in the late 1970's: 43-39 with a 3.48 ERA.
Overall, Marty Pattin was 114-109 with a 3,64 ERA & 64 complete games. Naturally, he would have gotten a lot more headlines had he pitched with some better teams in his career.
